    Such a beautiful picture of Betty……I can hear her laughing.
    Our thoughts and prayers are with all the family at this time of sorrow. May you find comfort and solace in your happy memories of a loving and caring lady. She will stay alive in your hearts forever.
    We have so many happy memories of being together with Blake and Betty, camping and travelling. Ruth remembers when Betty gave her a shoebox full of jelly, all layered with different flavours. I was always in awe of the many talents Betty had including baking, paper tole, and knitting…..she could do anything she put her mind to. There were great times full of fun and laughter. We have so many memories of so many good times.

    Betty was a dynamic lady who was well known by many. We have had the pleasure of knowing Betty for many,many years. She will be missed.

  3. Hello to the Blake Family

    We loved your mom. She and I had nursing in common and often spoke of it. Your mom decorated our wedding cake for us 50 years ago. It was so beautiful! She and my mom were friends at All Saints (st. Georges) for many, many years. I was a facebook friend with her and we enjoyed talking from time to time. So sorry for this tremendous loss.

  6. Blake, Linda and families,
    I am so sorry to hear of the passing of your mother. We spent many afternoons at my shop with Betty telling stories and jokes. She was always a joy to be around. Most happy with her “Pinot Grigio” in hand telling a joke. She will be missed by all who knew her and shared time with her.
    Rest in peace Betty!!!

  10. Thinking of the family during this difficult time. I adored Betty as my own, I am truly blessed of the memories I have with her. She made such a big impact on my life, she didn’t make it to her big 104 birthday party as we planned but 95 is still pretty great. Sending all my love❤️

  13. Betty loved life, people, her family, our Lord, her husband Blake for nearly Seventy years.. She was blessed with so many
    Talents. great cook – spent years in the kitchen of her church feeding the flock. She sewed, knitted, crocheted and she
    was an Artist as well. She enjoyed her Bridge games. She always took time to chat with folks with her welcoming smile.
    She lived life well and is now home with her Lord. She will be remembered!

  14. To the Willock family;
    I first met Betty and Blake almost twenty three years ago and I adored them right off the hop. We became friends and Betty had me over for a nice meal, glass of wine and comphy homemade slippers when they lived at the Seaway Centre. I would bring some frozen soups and meals as well. Her company was always the best and I loved all her stories about traveling and especially camping. She was and is a true gem and I’m sure that she’s happy to be reunited with her love and will be keeping everyone on their toes!
    God bless, Ashli Elms xo

    To the Willock family: I was very sorry to read of Betty’s passing. My parents (Angus and Esther MacInnes) were long time friends of your parents. They had many laughs together playing bridge! Last time I saw Betty was at a church function at St. George’s when I had recently moved back to Sarnia in 1997. I told her who I was and she told me some pretty funny stories about my Mom and “marriage”. I guess she listened because my parents had 3 children together…lol I’m sure they are all together now playing a mean game of bridge! RIP
